Bose SoundLink Mini

 

This Bose is tiny, but its warm, rich bassy sound is music to our ears

Satisfyingly deep bass ; Sounds solid, cohesive and smooth ; Goes loud ; Good detail and excitement ; Solid construction

Sound could do with a touch more bite

Given the choice between a thin, sharp sound lacking in solid bass versus heaps of rich, deep bass and punchy sound, we’d go for the latter – especially in the case of this Bose speaker.

Bose SoundLink Mini review

 

Bose sets its sights on the portable Bluetooth speaker market

Excellent sound quality ; Beautiful design ; Compact ; 7 hours of battery life

Relatively expensive ; Proprietary charger (not-MicroUSB) ; Doesn't double as a speakerphone

If there's one thing Bose is known for it's quality audio products. And to that end the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker upholds that tradition. Sure the Bluetooth portable speaker scene is crowded with the likes of Jambox, Monster and Beats, but...

Bose SoundLink Mini review

 

Stylish, with plenty of bass, but more expensive than more capable alternatives

However, the speaker's performance in our battery life test was among the worst we've seen. Bose only quotes a seven-hour battery life, but at the same volume levels we use to test other portable Bluetooth speakers, the SoundLink Mini lasted for just...

Bose SoundLink Mini review

 

Bose has a reputation for impressive design, and the SoundLink Mini is no exception. It's constructed from an anodized aluminium case that matches almost perfectly with the same material Apple uses on its MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebooks. The case...

The Bose SoundLink Mini may not be the loudest portable Bluetooth speaker on the market, but it's one of the best sounding and really packs a punch considering its compact size.

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker review

 

It's a good thing Bose has its logo splayed across the front of its new ultracompact wireless Bluetooth speaker, the SoundLink Mini, because if it didn't, you just might think it was made by Apple.

The Bose SoundLink Mini is a very sleek, very compact wireless Bluetooth speaker that sounds very good for its small size. It also has excellent build quality, with a unibody aluminum enclosure, and includes a charging cradle that you can leave plugged...

Fairly pricey; no speakerphone capabilities; protective case costs extra.

While it's fairly expensive at $200, the Bose SoundLink Mini is one of few standout products in the ultracompact wireless speaker category, featuring a top-notch design and very good sound for its tiny size.

Bose SoundLink Mini

 

The Bose SoundLink Mini continues Bose's line of excellent Bluetooth speakers, this time in a smaller form and with a more affordable price tag.

The Bose SoundLink Mini is an impressive little powerhouse that produces clear, solid sound. It might be lacking in the bass punch the SoundLink II and other larger, more expensive speakers offer, but for its size and price it offers great performance....

The Bose SoundLink Mini is one of the best sounding portable Bluetooth speakers on the market

Excellent, compact design ; Good sound quality ; Included charging dock

Doesn't charge via micro-USB ; Aluminium finish prone to light scratches ; Accessories are expensive

The Bose SoundLink Mini continues Bose's line of excellent Bluetooth speakers, this time in a smaller form and with a more affordable price tag.

Room-filling sound. Satisfying midrange and high-end. Solid, sturdy construction. Handy charging cradle.

Doesn't charge through micro USB. Bass isn't particularly powerful. No speakerphone function.

Conclusion The Bose SoundLink Mini is an impressive little powerhouse that produces clear, solid sound. It might be lacking in the bass punch the SoundLink II and other larger, more expensive speakers offer, but for its size and price it offers great...
